Why JahSun Martini chose Asheville

Setting the standard for residential homes!

The Nauhaus is the first Hempcrete Home in America, and is setting the standard for what is possible in terms of alternative energy and building.

Complete with all the modern amenities of home; within a rustic setting, surrounded by nature, with a creek running through the backyard, as well as close access to the Greenway trail along the Hominy Creek (river) , and walking distance from Haywood Road / West Asheville Village, and 5 mi to both downtown Ashe-ville and the Biltmore Estate and Village.

Asheville has proven to attract the most genuine, unique, and authentic people we have ever met. We love our Community, and are so grateful to have relocated here from the West Coast. It is an amazing place to raise a child, as we are quickly finding out.

What makes this apartment unique

Many of the details listed above, of why we chose this beautiful and unique home!

The Nauhaus is the first Hempcrete Home in America, and is setting the standard for what is possible in terms of alternative energy and building.

Complete with all the modern amenities of home; within a rustic setting, surrounded by nature, with a creek running through the backyard, as well as close access to the Greenway trail along the Hominy Creek (river) , and walking distance from Haywood Road / West Asheville Village, and 5 mi to both downtown Ashe-ville and the Biltmore Estate and Village.

We love being so close to all major attractions, shopping, and restaurants, yet be able to come home to such a peaceful abode nestled in the trees, with a flowing creek in our backyard, and a trail with 'hobbit' style bridge across the creek, through the woods, and to the Hominy Creek Greenway.

Also, love sitting outside on the brick patio or porch with candlelight listening to nature's orchestra, watching the fireflies, and on a clear night the majestic starlit sky!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely stay at JahSun and Lizzy's place in West Asheville. The neighborhood is wooded residential, about a mile from the shops in West Asheville, and a few more miles to downtown Asheville. (You do want a car here, although the intrepid could probably get along on bikes. ) I was glad we stayed in West Asheville as it would be easy to overlook otherwise and it has its own character and charm. JahSun and Lizzy are wonderful people and of course they have a bundle of joy in Sophia. The house is very cool and the apt downstairs, where you will be staying, is perfect for two people. Very restful, terrific few days there, we will be back.

Fascinating hemp-crete house, well constructed. Hosts were wonderful - Jah Sun was warm and perceptive and interested. The space was conducive to sleep and relaxation, and Asheville and its environs were all kinds of fun.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful experience staying here and meeting Jahsun, Lizzy and their daughter. I was here for about 10 days while taking a class in W. Asheville. Loved how close it was (walking distance) to everything...including the Tues afternoon tailgate farmers market. Jahsun and Lizzy were so welcoming and shared great information about the local area. I highly recommend this for your stay in Asheville.

PS...also check out the gorgeous trail behind the house. Will see if I can post a picture.

Comfortable, Casual hideaway

  • 4 of 5
Very conveniently located in West Asheville within walking distance to lots of W. Asheville shops and restaurants. Enjoyed exploring W. Asheville, River Arts District, Downtown Asheville, and Brevard, NC. Hosts were helpful and relaxed so that you could just do your own thing. Enjoyed food at Chai Pani (Downtown), Oyster House Brewing Co. (W. Asheville); good coffee @ Waking Life (W. Asheville); wonderful chocolate & coffee @ French Broad Chocolates (downtown). No shortage of great IPAs from local breweries.

West Asheville fan

  • 4 of 5
My husband, sister & I enjoyed our peaceful accommodations in this quiet, well appointed W. Asheville apartment. We had breakfasts & evenings out on the patio, which we found great for bird watching as it faced private green space. We enjoyed evening walks through the neighborhood up to Hayward St for some great meals at some of the many eateries there. We also bicycled over to nearby river greenway trail.
The apartment could use a little more china ware, & a microwave for ease of meal prep & reheating leftovers.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing to stay with us in our W AVL hempcrete hOMe.. grateful you enjoyed staying with us! I Am still in awe of all the diverse bird activity near the patio and backyard. I Believe your husband said that he counted 25 different types/species. Great to see you walked to Haywood Rd a couple times during your stay to explore the fantastic cafes.

I was surprised to hear the statement about the chinaware, as we have at least 3 full settings in the kitchen, as well as an abundant amount of cookware. I have additional place settings available upon request. And, I would have gladly provided the additional chinaware, had I known it was needed? In addition, we do not use a microwave, and had never received a request for one in the apt.
We do have a stove and proper cookware in the apt to heat up leftovers as desired by guests.
Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and as I inform guests upon their arrival... please text or call me with any special requests or questions. As I appreciate supporting our guests, and it is much more beneficial to accommodate and respond in the moment, rather than after checkout.
Many Blessings and Much Gratitude,
JahSun, Lizzy, and Baby Sophia

My boyfriend and I stayed at Nauhaus for a few days. Jahsun and Lizzy were great hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. The location is convenient to a lot of things (restaurants, parks, trails, shops, etc). We had a lovely relaxing time at Nauhaus, hope to be back again some day!
